I have known Erin Merryn – author, activist and outspoken sexual abuse survivor – for many years. As we continue to work together to shatter the silence of sexual violence, I urge you to please to take action on Erin’s Law today.  

A message from PAVE  Ambassador Erin Merryn who appeared on OPRAH in Oct…

“At this very moment millions of children are sitting in classrooms learning how to add, subtract, spell, say no to drugs, escape a tornado, stop, drop, and roll in a fire, and thousands of those children sit in silence waiting for someone to give them the message on safe touch/unsafe touch/safe secrets/unsafe secrets/how to get away and how to tell today. Thank you for acting on this law. It will give children the voice we never had growing up in school.”
